The effigy will suggest a nuclear bomb has accidentally fallen from the sky and embedded itself in the playa where it may soon explode. It will be tilted at a 10 degree angle to further suggest what has occurred was an accident. The structure will stand at 30’ tall and be approximately 16’ wide. The front of the piece will have the Atomic Dream neon sign. The back of the piece will have a door serving as access to the inside. Suspended on the inside will be the Atomic Chandelier. This piece will pay homage to atomic design and will illuminate the interior of the structure.
At the top of the exterior, in the center of the tail fin, will be four flame effects; one large poofer surrounded by three small ones. As users press the buttons below these will go off creating an effect of the engines still sputtering even though the bomb is lodged into the ground. The exterior will also be illuminated by strips of LED’s running along the vertical ribs of the structure. These will shift in an upward motion through yellow, white and red, mimicking the color pallet of the neon sign.
Nuclear Dream started as an idea for a CORE installation. The community got behind the concept and soon realized they would not do the project justice if they were to stay within the confines of CORE. Through a vigorous democratic process, we decided that this project would take all the philosophies of CORE, and create a non-CORE project that would represent our fabulous city. It is appropriate that the project represents a metaphorical leak from the Core. Who better to pioneer Core-leaks than a radioactive city like Las Vegas? Nuclear Dream is our fallout project.
